Another way to contribute to Casa Hogar is to offer your time and hard work as a volunteer.  The tasks that volunteers take on vary according to the duration of stay and the volunteer’s interests and capabilities.  These range from manual labor (painting, gardening, cleaning, etc.) to working directly with the kids within the families, to administrative tasks.  Because there are some restrictions regarding the number of volunteers we can accept at one time, an application process is required for long term volunteers.
